my last post was about focussing on things i enjoy and that make me happy. this one is more of the same!
i replenished my stock of embroidery floss last week, and seeing it all laid out, so bright and inviting gave me a little glow.
it’s making me want to sew so much, but i am writing lab reports at the moment, so it will have to wait!
in the mean time, i have more cute and pretty things to share:
pretty: i am plotting a recreation of this beautiful bedroom at my place. i think a few trips to antique stores and a couple of quilting days could get me there!

cute: i love this beautiful print of a girl reading in the forest by groundwork. i can just put myself right in it - i love that!
cute: david morrissey is one of the cutest guys around, and this portrait of him, by andrew farrington, is further evidence of said cuteness, in my opinion! it’s part of a really amazing series of portraits, in which every subject is wearing that same hat. you can see the series at his website
pretty: i hardly ever iron clothes, but as a quilter i spend a lot of time at my ironing board. as a result i want it to be pretty. mine, sadly, is not. fortunately, “tiny happy” posted some really easy instructions for making your own ironing board cover, and i am going to have a go at following them soon.
cute: this amazing chalkboard calendar idea, from home shopping spy, makes me wish i had a wall free to do it on… ours would be covered in doodles and silly notes along with all the serious appointments and reminders that would go there too!
ok! i’m going back to the books!
